Good coastal razor clam digging when the weather allows

Those who plan their coastal razor clam digging trips in between storms are the most successful as was witnessed for Tuesday’s opener at Twin Harbors.

“There were 800 people out (Tuesday) night at Twin Harbors, and the average was 14.6 clams per person (15 is a daily limit),” said Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish manager. “Weather looks bad the next few days, and Saturday calls for heavy rains, but the good tides might make it better.”

Digs are: Thursday, Dec. 13 at Twin Harbors; Friday and Saturday, Dec. 14-15 at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks; and Sunday, Dec. 16 at Long Beach, Twin Harbors and Mocrocks. Digging is allowed after noon each day.

Other tentative dates are: Dec. 28 at Twin Harbors; Dec. 29 at Long Beach, Twin Harbors and Mocrocks; Dec. 30-31 at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks.

More dates will be announced soon for January and February.
